R61 does not boot when connected with power adapter...runs fine on battrey

Hello,

 

My R61 runs fine on battrey power, but the screen freezes up the moment I connect the power adapter to the computer.

 

Any possible solutions.....please help

 

Is this a common problem with lenovo laptops.....one of my friend had a similar problem last year..........

does this problem occur when you take the battery out and plug in the AC adapter for power?

Yes,

 

The computer does not boot up at all, when connected to power adapter without the battrey
